    After being out of professional competition for approximately four years, UFC king and all time great Georges St. Pierre returned and defeated MW Champion Micheal Bisping who is arguably a better fighter than a lot of Anderson’s opponents.

    No need to bring up past losses to low-tier fighters. The focus should be on overall quality of fighter and record. Please disregard Anderson losing to Roy Chonan or Bisping losing to Wanderlei Silva.

    I am inclined to suggest that yes, Bisping is a feather in GSP’s crap. It’s only fair when you consider Anderson’s opponents.

    Debatable?

    Not really debatable. Silva's resume >>>>>> GSP's.

    Bisping was a gate keeper when Anderson was dismantling all the MWs.

    No....hes always been a poor man's Rich Franklin in my book and when ufc bought SFORCE , Bisping went from a top 5-6 fixture at middleweight to a top 8- 12 185er.

    The second part of your post I agree with. However over time, Bisping earned his way ahead of many of Silva’s opponents.
    Picture a horse race.
    Bisping may have been trailing the elite status early but as the race continued, he surpasses a lot of the others.

    Right but since then...

    Bisping surpassed many of those he was ranked behind.

    Better than Cote, Leites, Irvin etc.

    Not better than Chael, Vitor, Hendo (can be equal to Chael).

    Guys like Forrest, Marquardt and Okami are debatable vs Bisping.

    Never thought I'd meet someone who needs lessons on how arrows work.

    Hendo
    Vitor
    Franklin
    Forrest
    Sakurai
    Marquardt
    Chael
    Maia

    Bisping is good but all those guys were a tougher opponent than a 2017 Bisping IMO.

    Here’s a reminder: BISPING NEVER LEGITIMATELY EARNED A TITLE SHOT. Most of Anderson’s opponents did.

    Sorry I yelled, but this shit is fucking retarded.

    Bisping is a good fighter, and he’s a tough competitor, and it’s pretty cool that he won the belt.

    But he has never, at any point in his career, been the best middleweight in the UFC. Or even the second best.

    Never once.

    OP wasn’t saying he was ever the best.

    Obviously.

    The likes of Maia, Leites, Cote, Leben, Okami, Lutter are all inferior fighters to Ping

    Yea no. Dj doesnt count. Fights weak competition. Joke competition infact. Anderoid and jones popped for roids. Anderoid got his ass whopped inside and out by weidman who made him his bitch. Fedor lost when competion got tough. He was probably on juice too considering how his level dropped as soon as he faced werdum.
    Gsp clean goat.
    Jones steroid goat.
    No one else comes close. Thanks bai.

    Doesn't that further point to the thin roster at 185 when Silva dominated if a top 5 guy during Silva's run fell in the rankings once strikeforce showed up?

    Not necessarily cause Bisping lost every single contender fight- he was 0 fer before then was 0 fer- until past his prime Anderson squeaker .
